About This Template
When considering where to start on your Rindle board, this baseline workflow will give you a solid foundation, if not the workflow you end up sticking with. Here are the lists you will use:
Backlog > In Progress > Blocked > Done
This list will store all of the work that needs to get done. Typically, this is where tasks start in the workflow. More specifically, they usually start at the bottom of the list as the Backlog is usually prioritized top to bottom.
This list will house tasks that are currently being worked on. Tasks should only be moved from the Backlog to In Progress when it's actually being worked on, not planned to be worked on. If it's not currently being worked on it should remain in the Backlog.
This list will help your team separate tasks that have outside dependencies holding up progress. By moving it out of In Progress to Blocked, it visually sets the task apart so the entire team knows which tasks are Blocked. @mention specific people of the blocked task.
This list is exactly as described. Tasks that are completed live here.
How to use this template
The lists as described above will flow left to right. Backlog on the far left and Done on the far right. In the same manner, tasks will flow through lists from left to right.
All new tasks get added to the bottom of the Backlog
Tasks get pulled from the Backlog into In Progress and assigned to a team member
If there is something holding up a task, it gets moved to Blocked
When issues with Blocked tasks are resolved, the task moves back to In Progress
When the task is complete, it moves to Done
